Jill Janus ~ Huntress
You know that dirty male fantasy you have where a goddess like witch takes you to places your body has never been before, then you awake with a start as she devours your soul and your flesh? Jill Janus is the embodiment of that twisted dream– a heavy metal fiend, Julliard graduate and former Playboy playmate. Like a dark siren she will lull you in with her beauty, then her voice will pierce your soul and you will blissfully writhe in pain impaled upon her microphone. Janus is an operatic banshee with an unparalleled four-octave coloratura soprano range and a lust for the occult. “Within me, there’s a nasty, horny old witch who runs the show. Beauty is fleeting, power and magic are eternal.”
Born and raised in the Catskill Mountains of New York, she toured Europe as a teenage opera starlet. Upon her return to the States, Janus embraced the Manhattan nightlife, creating Felliniesque cabarets and parties in a nihilistic club scene. She spent time as a DJ under the pseudonym Penelope Tuesdae, a job she loathed. Years later, Janus moved to Los Angeles and began the gestation period of Huntress. In 2009 she met underground metal band Professor. The universe spread her legs and delivered Huntress to Janus, combining former members of Professor, Dark Black and Skeletonwitch.
This spring Janus and Huntress will release their debut album Spell Eater on Napalm Records. She is fully aware of, and embraces the fact that her sexuality and looks will be what catches people’s eye. It is the music however that will keep them within her grasp; heads banging, devil horns in the air. Tits and axe! What metal fan could ask for more? Metal’s Pagan Mistress is ready to cast her spells upon the world. ”You wanted the chest, and you’ve got the chest…The hottest metal Queen in the world, Janus!”
